Our third stay at La Penita. Still as good as ever. Clean and comfortable apartments in a great location. Staff work tirelessly to keep the apartments and complex looking its best. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We found La Penita through trip advisor, It was exactly as expected. We tend to take our sun holidays in the off season as we enjoy temperatures closer to the 20degree mark rather than being baked! So It was probably a quieter time of the year for the complex but yet there still seemed to be plenty of guests. We noticed over the week that many guests knew eachother from previous holidays so they obviously are repeat customers. I have no complaints about La Pentia, its good value, 12euros taxi from the Airport, we went at time of year and a temperature thats suits us, there was no issues with the apartment or sunbeds, staff were friendly and the pool is nice. We never ate in the pool side bar so I dont know what thats like, we just bought ice pops in it, but its only a 4euro taxi ride up the the nice fish restaurants of the old town. Its a bit of a walk up to the main strip from these apartments but myself and my partner enjoy exploring so that was fine for us. There was also a lovely family run Italian restaurant nearby which is definately worth checking out but I can't remember its name. We'll go back again, and for those who just want to read their book in peace while sunbathing its ideal.

We stayed at La Penita for a week at the end of January. The location is ideal - right on the strip but set back far enough to avoid noise from the road and bars. Its near the beaches - Playa Grande is a couple of minutes in one direction, and Playa Pocillos is a few minutes in the other. Both beaches are lovely and sandy, plenty of room. The sunbeds are a bit pricey though at 10 euro for 2 beds, although you do get an umbrella so i guess it would be good in the heat of summer. It was quite cloudy when we were there so no need. The apts are about 15 /20 min walk to the old town/port area which has fantastic tapas places. We also had a great meal at Da Vincis near the apartment. The room is very big and clean. We were in a garden view room (no 198) although we really had a view of the bike rental place opposite! No worries though, we were just glad it was clean, and it had a kitchen if you wanted to cook, but we just used the fridge to keep the drinks cold! Nice pool although we only went one day as the beaches are so good. One tiny complaint was that the hot water ran out quickly so we got used to having very short showers! We put that down to the weather not being particularly sunny, and it wasnt too bad.

Third visit to La Penita and as expected everything was just what we wanted - room with a sea view, plenty of sun beds by the pool to relax on, very clean apartment, pleasant and helpful staff, free bottle of wine as returning guests and great location for bars and restaurants. Pool bar staff provided great service with food, drink and television viewing of our choice! Only down side was the towels in the apartment which were clean enough but poor quality. Buffet at the Peking Duck was excellent value and friendly staff. Also would recommend Blair's restaurant for great food near the Biosphere. Went on free PAL trip, promoting healthy mattresses and related goods, but worthwhile to see another bit of the island! Will certainly return to La Penita.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking sea gave us a great view of liners, fishing boats, yachts, etc and even lucky enou...

Apartments were really clean and big, with some english channels (even a movie channel) _ we had room136 and this was by far the best room for views. we had a great pool and sea view with the sun on our balcony all day.
Staff were polite and helpful.
beach nearby was great, soft sand and free toilets. 2xsunbeds 10euros.

food in puerto del carmen was great value, we ate at mulligans irish bar and for a 3course meal cost 12euros, we also ate at an all you can eat buffet called peking duck (next door to hotel) 8euros each and down the road another buffet called dragon 6.95euros each. fab food! we also walked all the way to the other end by the old town and biosfera and there was a fantastic resturant near the port (i cant remember name of it but a two course meal was 8.50euros and again excellent food.

I had a 1/2 litre of sangria which was around 6euros in most places. and beer was around 1.50euros.

cocktails were pretty cheap too, we went to route 66 and paid 5euros a cocktail,
good range of supermarkets near by, spar was probably the best.

went to teguise market who we booked with 'lastmin' company opposite beach only 4euros each return with a good english speaking tour guide,

lanzarote was a lovely island and i will defiantly return, especially to la penita apartments.

weather from 16th-30th jan was ok, very mixed days, one day was glorious next day it rained (still got a good tan tho)

enjoy your trip to lanzarote

Room Tip: rooms facing the sea are brilliant - our room was 136 and we had the sun all day with a pool and sea...
